"Maybe you can't figure out why more talented people won't join your security team."

A few months ago, I was asked to interview for a CISO position at a global mid-size enterprise.

For starters, the pay was below industry average.  Not too bad...except for the fact that, (1) the "requirements" in the job posting represented fanciful thinking -- even for industry standard -- and (2) as far as I could tell, the company's data protection policies were virtually nil outside of far-too-often mandated password changes.  (Meanwhile, the physical security was woeful.)  The person this company eventually hires will have to build everything pretty much from scratch.

What's more, the position was more of a "CISO-plus" role -- combining the roles of the CISO, the CCO, and the CPO.  Additionally, the job had three bosses -- but with no real budget for the department/goals of the role.

They still haven't filled the role -- and they've recently reposted the identical job posting except with a less impressive job title (apparently to try to disguise the fact that the pay is below average).

So, there's that.
